How to Buy a Suit Online

April 12, 2015

Wearing a suit every now and then is not a complete necessity exclusive to those that live in bustling suburbs or city centres. On occasion, the lads that live in more remote, country or rural areas will also need to don their finest attire for those special occasions.

However, unlike the city dwellers where dropping by the shops to purchase a well fitted suit is quick and easy – the guys out in more remote areas are restricted to the uncertainty of online shopping. Therein lies the issue of buying a suit online - which is where we come in to help!

Choose a reputable company

Just like anything else you buy, quality is important and we're not just talking about the suit! Seek out a trustworthy company, and steer clear of the websites that you tend to find at the far end of the Google search pages.

So how do you suss out if a company is reputable? Having heard of them before helps, as well as checking out some reviews online. Trust your gut, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is!


A perfect suit starts with the right measurements so it's important to spend a bit of extra time on this step. Grab a tape measure and get a friend or family member to help you out, or make a quick trip to your local tailor. It's better to be a little more generous with your measurements than too precise - it'll give you more to work with should you need to do a little altering!

It's also worth going to your wardrobe and digging out your old reliable suit to help you compare and get the sizing just right.

Pay attention to the details

It's easy to get a little carried away with simply choosing what looks great in the pictures, so remember to also have a good read of the fine print to ensure you’re getting what’s best for your shape and size. This includes reading what materials the suit is made of, the colour, and the overall design – opt for solids or very subtle patterns, because things may look a lot different than they do on the computer screen.

Check for special offers and any valid promo codes - you may be able to squeeze in a few extras with your purchases for a cheaper price! In addition, take a peek in the accessories category for a complementary pocket square or cufflinks to complete your look!

Return Policies

Before placing your order, head over to their exchange and returns policy page to ensure that there's wiggle room should the suit arrive and it isn’t what you expected! Knowing there's an undo button to all of this will give you peace of mind.
